I have been making weekly videos for YouTube for about a month now and I must say I am really enjoying it. There’s so much to learn, e.g. speaking in front of a camera, editing, scripting, and promoting the video and so on. It is also providing me with a way to get stuff ‘out there’. Albeit for a very small audience at the moment. I even uploaded some (over-ambitious) cover songs, some behind the scenes video’s. I’m trying new things, that’s for sure.
I am both IN and OUT of my comfortzone. IN, as in still in my home studio and OUT, as in talking to a possible huge audience.
It is still early days, but I realised quickly I needed to find my niche. For my video’s to have any chance of getting found, they need to be about as specific a subject as possible.
So now I’m trying to come up with ways of describing my niche. Music or musician is much too broad. Maybe youtubemusician, or from mothing to something songwriting. I found I like to inspire and motivate people to make music. People tend to be amazed of how I keep mustering the courage to make (my own) music. And where do the songs and ideas come from? Maybe that’s my niche. I guess time will tell.
In the meantime, you can call me a YouTuber! And maybe consider subscribing!
